Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article introduces the Hansard at Huddersfield web application, which allows users to make a range of different searches of the Hansard data (1803–2021) and which draws on the insights of corpus linguistics (CL) and visualization techniques to appeal to researchers from backgrounds where these approaches are relatively underused. The web application aims to be accessible and includes advice on interpreting the results of searches as well as always allowing the user to access the original Hansard text. This article explains the scope and functionality of the site as well as its architecture, and gives example uses of the system.
